Default Vaccinations ?

Hi guys,

Looking for advise on what to do, am not talking about the rights and wrongs of vaccinations but the process. My wife and I are both on GESY no problems here and last year while visiting family in UK got our flu vaccination and was informed by the Doc we could have the pneumonia vacc for free as well, just to make an appointment for the 2nd option any time of the year.

So this year obviously it will be in Cyprus, anyway yesterday i read on in-cyprus news that the health ministry are now offering the pneumonia jab free providing you go to a vaccination centre, what is a vaccination centre, does it have big words on top of the building saying Vaccination Centre ?

So I went to my Doctor here and the reply later was that she has never heard of this but I can go and buy from a pharmacists (in UK Boots offer it for 70 pound, looked it up) and she would administrate it, together with the flu jab when they come, strange I thought free or buy ! I wrote to the newspaper who replied minimally - your Doctor has to refer you to the Health ministry for the flu and pneumonia.

Anyone know whats going on here before I stick my foot in at as we say, am I being synical and someones trying it on ?
